Bitcoin on paras sijoitusmahdollisuus, sanoo finanssitieteilijä Niall Ferguson

Tuoreessa haastattelussa, kun kysyttiin „Mikä on paras sijoitusmahdollisuus pandemian seurauksena“, tunnettu finanssihistorioitsija tohtori Niall Ferguson sanoi, että hänen olisi käytettävä Bitcoinia.

Hänen verkkosivuillaan kerrotun tiedon mukaan Ferguson

Hänen verkkosivuillaan kerrotun tiedon mukaan Ferguson on tällä hetkellä Milbank-perheen vanhempi stipendiaatti Hoover-instituutissa (osa Stanfordin yliopistoa), joka on „julkisen politiikan ajatushautomo, joka edistää yksilön, taloudellisen ja poliittisen vapauden periaatteita“.

Hän on myös Harvardin Belferin tiede- ja kansainvälisten asioiden keskuksen vanhempi tiedekunnan jäsen ja vieraileva professori Pekingin Tsinghuan yliopistossa. Ferguson, joka nimettiin vuonna 2004 TIME-lehden sadan maailman vaikutusvaltaisimman henkilön joukkoon, on opettanut Cambridgessa, Oxfordissa ja Harvardissa.

Vuonna 2008 hän julkaisi kirjan „Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World“. Tätä sovitettiin myöhemmin televisioon viisiosaisena dokumenttielokuvana, joka voitti vuoden 2009 kansainvälisen Emmy-palkinnon parhaana dokumenttielokuvana.

Fergusonin viimeisimmät kommentit Bitcoinista haastattelussa Barron’sin

Fergusonin viimeisimmät kommentit Bitcoin Profit haastattelussa Barron’sin apulaispäätoimittaja Andrew Baryn kanssa, joka julkaistiin artikkelina perjantaina (4. joulukuuta).

Kun Ferguson kysyttiin, mikä on pandemian paras sijoitusmahdollisuus, hän vastasi:

„Menen Bitcoinin kanssa. Sillä on ollut tähti vuosi, kasvua tähän mennessä 165%. [Se on nyt yli 19 000 dollaria.] Jos olisit vuoden alussa sanonut: „Pandemia on tulossa. Se tulee olemaan erittäin häiritsevä. Pitäisikö minun valita kulta vai Bitcoin? ” olisit ollut oikeassa valitsemalla Bitcoin, koska kulta on vain 21% korkeampi. Joten Bitcoinin tuotot ovat olleet suuruusluokkaa suurempia. „

Sitten hän selitti, miksi Bitcoin on onnistunut toimimaan niin hyvin tämän pandemian aikana:

„Pandemiassa taloudellista historiaa voidaan nopeuttaa. Olemme nähneet sen samalla tavalla kuin musta kuolema kiihdytti kolikoiden käyttöä rahana. Luontoismaksut tuottivat rahaa Euroopassa, mikä nopeutui 1340-luvulla. Tämä pandemia on nopeuttanut Bitcoinin hyväksymistä digitaaliseksi omaisuudeksi, lähes digitaaliseksi kullaksi. Lähes joka kuukausi eräs valtavirran sijoitusmaailman päähenkilö on sanonut: „OK, nyt otan Bitcoinin vakavasti.“ Tätä institutionaalisen hyväksymisen prosessia on jatkettava.

MicroStrategy bought another $50 million in Bitcoin

According to SEC filings, MicroStrategy purchased another $50 million worth of Bitcoin. Michael Saylor confirms the acquisition.

MicroStrategy, the business intelligence company, has purchased 2,574 Bitcoins at $19,427 each, for a total of $50 million. Indeed, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor confirmed the third purchase.

Specifically, Michael Saylor bought 2,574 Bitcoins for $50 million in cash. This increased the company’s cash holdings to approximately 40,824 Bitcoins.

Michael Saylor: „Bitcoin is a $250 billion solution“
MicroStrategy continues to purchase Bitcoin
Previously, on August 11, MicroStrategy invested $250 million in Bitcoin (21,454 BTC). When the price was in the $11,700 range.

It also channelled another $175 million into Bitcoin (16,796 BTC) on September 14. When the price of the currency fell to around $10,700.

Michael Saylor said the latest purchase is part of MicroStrategy’s cash reserve policy of avoiding inflation-prone cash from Bitcoin.

Interestingly, according to data from Bitcoin.Treasuries, MicroStrategy has more Bitcoin than any other public company. Next up is Galaxy Digital Holdings, led by Mike Novogratz. Then, Square, Jack Dorsey’s company.

As a result, MicroStrategy’s stock has skyrocketed 170%. That’s basically since Michael Saylor first hinted at the company’s interest in Bitcoin in July 2020.

It’s worth noting that recent institutional investments have been seen by many analysts as the cause of Bitcoin’s recent bull run.

Michael Saylor: Why will Bitcoin prevail over gold?
Coinbase facilitated the purchase of Bitcoin
According to an official announcement, Coinbase was selected as the lead execution partner for the $425 million purchase of Bitcoin from MicroStrategy.

In this regard, Brett Tejpaul, Coinbase’s Head of Institutional Sales, in a blog post, provided further details about the purchase. This is in line with the company’s goal of facilitating institutional purchases.

According to the post, MicroStrategy chose Coinbase because the platform provides a number of marketplace tools. Indeed, such as intelligent order routing and algorithmic trading tools.

In fact, Coinbase revealed that MicroStrategy’s initial $250 million investment was made through Coinbase Prime.

This was followed by an investment of $175 million. This brought MicroStrategy’s total investment to $425 million in Bitcoin.

True, MicroStrategy stated, „Investing in Bitcoin is part of the company’s new allocation strategy.

It is worth emphasizing, that Michael Saylor, has been outspoken about his support for Bitcoin, describing cryptomoney as „digital gold“. In addition, he assured that his company would store its Bitcoins for 100 years.

„Imagine a world where everyone uses something fair and equitable to resolve their economic difference.

In conclusion, it’s not surprising that MicroStrategy continues to buy Bitcoin – would it be a good investment? Leave your opinion in the comment box.

I close with this statement from Michael Saylor: „When you invest in Bitcoin, you always worry that you are not investing enough.

Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine News envoie Bitcoin à un nouveau sommet en 2020

Moderna Therapeutics a annoncé les résultats fructueux des essais de son vaccin COVID-19. Cela a envoyé les actions de la société dans le ciel tandis que Bitcoin a tracé un nouveau record pour 2020.

La situation autour d’un éventuel vaccin contre le nouveau coronavirus COVID-19 continue d’évoluer.

Aujourd’hui, Moderna Therapeutics, l’une des plus grandes sociétés pharmaceutiques au monde, a annoncé que ses données préliminaires montrent que son vaccin contre le coronavirus est efficace à plus de 94%.

Cela a fait monter le cours de son action et les principaux indices, qui se négocient tous dans le vert après l’ouverture du marché de lundi. Ce n’est pas tout, cependant, car le prix du bitcoin est également à la hausse, marquant un nouveau sommet de 2020 au-dessus de 16600 $.

Moderna partage les résultats positifs des essais sur le vaccin COVID-19

Des nouvelles plus positives sont arrivées aujourd’hui sur le front du vaccin COVID-19. L’un des principaux développeurs de médicaments, Moderna Therapeutics, a partagé la bonne nouvelle concernant son vaccin.

Selon un rapport de CNBC , les données des essais de la phase préliminaire trois montrent que le vaccin de la société est efficace à plus de 94% pour prévenir le virus. S’exprimant à ce sujet, le PDG de l’entreprise, Stéphane Bancel, a déclaré:

Cette analyse intermédiaire positive de notre étude de phase 3 nous a donné la première validation clinique que notre vaccin peut prévenir la maladie COVID-19, y compris les maladies graves.

Peu de temps après que les nouvelles ont vu le jour, les actions de la société ont explosé. Cela a également été bien accueilli par l’ensemble du marché, car les principaux indices se négocient également dans le vert. Au moment d’écrire ces lignes, le S&P 500 est en hausse de plus de 1,1%, tandis que le NASDAQ et le Dow Jones Industrial Average enregistrent également des augmentations similaires.

La nouvelle intervient peu de temps après que Pfizer a également annoncé le succès de ses essais de vaccins la semaine dernière.

Bitcoin atteint un nouveau sommet annuel au-dessus de 16600 $

Il semble que l’histoire se répète. Lorsque Pfizer a annoncé les résultats positifs de ses essais, le prix du bitcoin a augmenté et a presque dépassé le sommet annuel précédent. Cependant, comme CryptoPotato l’a rapporté, la crypto-monnaie a également perdu de sa valeur, perdant 600 $ très peu de temps après, avant de pouvoir récupérer.

Maintenant, les choses semblent un peu similaires, même si, au moment d’écrire ces lignes, BTC est en train de monter. Il a réussi à atteindre un sommet intrajournalier à 16 640 $ sur Binance, laissant le sommet annuel précédent bien derrière.

Doers instead of representatives

Instead of talking to the usual suspects and brightly colored dogs, i.e. well-known investors, advocates and thought leaders, in this documentary you let many of those who have not been the first to be associated with Bitcoin Evolution reviews in the public perception have their say. But they are entitled to this because they are the ones who have been dealing with it for years and sometimes decades, working on its implementation and helping to shape the Bitcoin ecosystem.

Somewhat men-heavy, but still great in terms of content. The interview partner

The good half an hour offers new, interesting insights into the history of Bitcoin, among other things.

From the film description :

„The documentary The Digital Rush is about interviewing key figures in the bitcoin ecosystem and documenting the community and its events. A proper representation of the bitcoin proposition will be provided: cypherpunk movement, technological choices, monetary impact and cultural relevance, etc. It will emphasize the emergence of bitcoin as digital gold.

Aimed at a non-technical audience, the documentary will explain bitcoin using the words of its community members; their advanced (often geeky) technical comments will be properly framed between plain informative segments providing a gradual educational path.„

Bitcoin’s progress is also evident here

All in all, a very interesting and demanding documentary also – or maybe even especially – for those who already know a bit more about Bitcoin. You can overlook the fact that with the music here and there, a little courage to less is more would have been good.

What is also definitely noteworthy and is shown by the recorded Bitcoin explanation clip from tens of years ago: How professional, mature, in-depth, serious and serious today’s Bitcoin explanation films (and thus also the perception of Bitcoin) have become .

It is possible to break the upward channel of the price of Ethereum if Bitcoin consolidates during the next few days

Bitcoin consolidation would allow Ethereum to double bottom on its BTC pair and possibly break the upward channel on its USDT pair.

Last week, Altcoin prices received a significant cut, and investors who had little interest in Bitcoin (BTC) saw the value of their portfolio affected.

Initially, Ether’s (ETH) price followed Bitcoin higher as the higher rated digital asset broke through the USD 12,000 resistance, but as BTC continued to climb slowly, Ether struggled to convert the USD 400 into support.

Ether’s loss of momentum and correction in the altcoins has led several cryptomoney traders to tweet that the altcoin season is over and many are citing the bearish price action in the ETH/BTC pair as evidence of this view.

Looking at the weekly ETH/BTC chart, traders will notice that the pair is about to fall below the rising trend line and the high volume VPVR node at 0.027294 satoshis.

Losing this level opens the door to a further drop to 0.024519 satoshis and below this Ether is approaching yearly lows near 0.0160 satoshis.

In the daily time frame, we can see that losing the support of 0.032385 satoshis pushes the price of Ether into the VPVR gap from 0.032385 satoshis to 0.029536 satoshis.

It appears that the bleeding will continue until the price reaches the 0.029536 satoshis level but the current daily candlestick is beginning to form what appears to be a double bottom and there appears to be an oversold rebound as the RSI is rising from 28 in the daily time period.

The signal line and MACD of the moving average divergence/convergence indicator are still in sharp decline and the absence of a large volume buy decreases the possibility of a short term trend reversal.

Perhaps if the Crypto Comeback Pro Bitcoin price were to enter a period of consolidation over the next few days, the ETH/BTC pair could regain some lost ground, but this seems unlikely at this time.

There is hope for the ETH/USDT

The ETH/USDT pair looks somewhat different as the pair continues to reach higher daily lows and the price action follows the upward channel support and resistance trend lines.

Channel support is running along with the 100-day moving average and once Ether is able to hold the $400 support, the $405 and $417 are the next hurdles to be cleared.

The price action within the upward channels is fairly easy to track and the 4 hour chart shows the MACD converging to the signal line as the sell off and the RSI rising towards 45.

In the short term, a move towards the middle line of the upward channel at $400 seems likely, but traders still expect this level to be a strong resistance. A short term move towards the middle line of the up channel at USD 400 seems likely but traders still expect this level to be a strong resistance.

If Ether’s price falls below the 100 moving average and exits the up channel there is support at USD 353, USD 330 and USD 315. Losing these levels means that traders can look for a more pronounced drop to USD 248.

Saylor ujawnił, że firma zdecydowała się kupić Bitcoin po tym, jak decydenci i inwestorzy w firmie dali kiwnięcie głową. Według niego MicroStrategy Bitcoin nie jest zabezpieczeniem ani spekulacją. Jest to raczej strategia przyjęcia standardów Bitcoin.

Wpływ COVID-19 na gospodarkę światową był kolejnym powodem, dla którego MicroStrategy musiała spojrzeć na alternatywne sposoby inwestowania. Musieli oni postawić na aktywa, które mogą zachować wartość jego kapitału w dłuższej perspektywie.

Bitcoin adoption soars in Turkey

In the midst of a strong economic crisis, the adoption of Bitcoin is soaring in Turkey, as an alternative to the Turkish lira.

Turkey’s economic situation is not the best. On the contrary, for several years, the Asian country’s economy has faced great difficulties, due to the overheating of the construction sector that has kept it growing until now. This has led to a drop in GDP, increased unemployment and the weakening of its national currency, the Turkish lira. So it’s not surprising that the adoption of Crypto Cash is soaring in Turkey.

Key data drives optimism at Bitcoin

The importance of Bitcoin in economies in crisis

Bitcoin’s role in economies in crisis is not new. The fact is that crypto currencies have started to have a better reception in the last years in developing countries. These countries have increased their adoption of virtual currencies, integrating them into their business models.

This is the case, unlike developed countries that have solid economies and currencies. Developing countries such as Venezuela, Argentina or Nigeria do not have the same level of stability in their societies. This leads people to seek refuge from both the weakness of their national currencies and the government controls that the State can exercise over their money.

For this reason, it has been precisely in these countries where, in recent years, the use of crypto currencies such as Bitcoin has grown significantly. This has increased not only transactions with cryptoactive, but also its use by businesses, and mining activities. This is exactly the phenomenon that we have been able to observe in Turkey in the last few years.

Institutions take bullish bets on Bitcoin

Turkey and crypto-currencies

Thus, despite the aggressive foreign policy pursued by his government, with its alleged intention to revive the Ottoman Empire. The truth is that Turkey’s economy is crunching and its citizens know it. Leading them to seek alternatives that will protect them from the weakness of the Turkish lira, as is the case with Bitcoin.

In this way, according to the platform of exchanges peer-to-peer of crypto currencies, Paxful, in the last twelve months they have lived an increase of 274% in the number of registries of users of Turkey. As CEO Ray Youssef mentions: „The rising inflation of the Turkish lira has been a great financial burden for Turkish citizens. Bitcoin can be used to preserve wealth against the instability surrounding the Turkish lira.

A view confirmed by the Chainalysis Geography of Cryptocurrency report. According to which Turkey would be the country in the Middle East with the highest adoption rate of Bitcoin, as well as having the highest number of operations in the BTC Blockchain. A trend that will continue in the future, as the country’s economy continues to suffer.

FileCoin fervor gathers momentum in China as its mainnet launch approaches

The main Filecoin network will likely launch this week.

Over 60% of minors reside in China

FIL was purchased en masse after the SBF mention and listing on OKEx.

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards.

One of the hottest projects in the industry right now is Filecoin, which is gaining momentum mainly in China. Its long-awaited launch of its mainnet is just a few days away.

Filecoin presents itself as a decentralized data collection and storage network designed to “store humanity’s most important information”. The crypto project developed by Protocol Labs is finally about to launch on the mainnet three years after its $ 200 million ICO.

The network uses IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) technology which allows users to rent unused disk space for storage and offer their own to host content. Media madness has intensified as the project aims to be a decentralized alternative to Amazon Web Services, which currently holds the majority of the cloud industry’s market share.

Filecoin mania joins the mainnet

At the end of September, the Nasdaq published an article highlighting the three-year roadmap of the project and the “Space Race” test network launched. It is added that approximately 3.5 million native FIL tokens have been used to buy and sell storage on the network and will be distributed to participants.

According to network explorer Filfox , the current network storage capacity is approximately 535 PiB (pebibytes), which is the binary equivalent of a petabyte. As with Bitcoin, miners in China dominate the distribution, although Singapore is also one of the best. More than 62% of all minors participating in testnet were based in China, according to the dashboard .

According to a recent article on Twitter Filecoin, there will be a week of web3 community discussions, workshops and panels to celebrate the launch. The mainnet will officially start at epoch 148,888, which is expected to happen around October 15. Much like Polkadot, Filecoin will take a staged approach to launch its mainnet.

Il miliardario Chamath Palihapitiya dice che il caos finanziario porterebbe Bitcoin a New Heights

Il capitalista di rischio e miliardario Chamath Palihapitiya dice che Bitcoin guiderà l’accessibilità finanziaria a miliardi di persone – se il sistema finanziario globale si sgretola.

Il CEO di Social Capital ed ex dirigente di Facebook è uno dei maggiori possessori di Bitcoin conosciuti. In una nuova intervista su Squawk Box della CNBC con Joe Kernen, Palihapitiya spiega cosa crede che ci vorrà perché il prezzo e l’adozione di Bitcoin raggiungano livelli vertiginosi.

„Gli ultimi milioni di monete di Bitcoin costeranno ovviamente più energia dei primi 18 milioni“. Ma nel grande schema delle cose, ancora una volta, questo è qualcosa che nel linguaggio Bitcoin la gente dice ‚Hodl‘. Lo compri, lo tieni, lo metti via“.

Ma Palihapitiya aggiunge che questa è una situazione che nessuno dovrebbe volere.

„E onestamente, penso che si spera di non averne mai bisogno perché la quantità di caos reale che guiderà l’apprezzamento dei Bitcoin non è qualcosa che si vuole veramente vedere“.

D’altra parte, Palihapitiya rimane ottimista sui cambiamenti che Bitcoin Rush potrebbe apportare all’infrastruttura finanziaria.

„Detto questo, se accadrà, credo che creerà un’enorme ridistribuzione del potere e spingerà il potere, spingerà l’accessibilità finanziaria ai margini, a miliardi e miliardi di persone. E in questo c’è qualcosa di cui essere davvero orgogliosi ed entusiasti“.

Palihapitiya dice anche che l’inflazione continuerà indipendentemente da chi vincerà le elezioni di novembre.

„Il fattore più dominante che vedo è la combinazione tra il Tesoro e la Federal Reserve. Hanno stampato così tanto denaro che la probabilità è che continueremo a vedere l’inflazione dei prezzi dei beni indipendentemente da chi si trova alla Casa Bianca“.

Uniswaps, Bitcoin Wraps en 20 Crypto Jokes

Het is niet verrassend dat de laatste zeven dagen hebben laten zien dat de Bitcoin-walvissen BTC in 2020 actief aan het verzamelen zijn en dat de CEO van MicroStrategy de bitcoin-weddenschap van het bedrijf heeft verdubbeld omdat er „triljoenen in de schatkisten aan het smelten zijn“. De grote cryptowisselaar Kraken heeft een bankcharter ontvangen, terwijl kusster Gene Simmons toegaf dat hij gemaakt is voor de liefdevolle BTC.

Tezelfdertijd hebben de regelgevers zoals de Financià „le Werkgroep van de Actie (BHV) crypto ,,rode vlaggen“ gezocht om misdadig gedrag te identificeren, terwijl de Venezolaanse cryptogebruikers meer en meer bezorgd werden over beperkte handelopties, alhoewel LocalBitcoins zei het niet het land zal verlaten. In Europa beloofden de regelgevers een nieuwe „golf van regelgevende verplichtingen“ voor lokale crypto-spelers, terwijl monero (XMR) omhoog ging als gevolg van het grote nalevingsnieuws.

Over altcoins gesproken, de Ethereumprijzen schoten weer omhoog toen het UNI-muntje van Uniswap live ging, terwijl Coinbase Pro een opnameprijs introduceerde. Ondanks de recente DeFi-token selloff, is de totale waarde vergrendeld in DeFi blijven stijgen, en KuCoin bood een verrassing voor duizenden Aave’s LEND houders.
